Whilst I personally think the 5 years since the last RT was _started_ 
rather than 5 years since it was _finished_ is a "mistake", that is what 
the rules are and they are the rules we should be following and 

I disagree that it starting and stopping near-immediately is not "a good 
thing" - it belittles the whole concept if an RT cannot convene and 
*make it's own decision* that due to other ongoing works in the area, 
that the RT would do it's job more effectively by waiting until that 
work was completed.

Instructing them to make that determination is wrong.

Having them make that determination themselves would certainly not be 
(and no-action-needed-right-now should be a valid RT decision) - and if 
the RT members are 'experts' I would expect them to come to that 
decision over WHOIS/RDS right now.

Let's follow the bylaws as written, not start deciding which are 
convenient to be followed
